Product Details


“A jewel of a book. A must read for any aspirant Parisian flâneur or intellectually curious visitor to the city. Hazan reminds us that Paris is so much more than its wide boulevards and antiseptic tourist spots. He invites us to consider its multi-layered, multi-linguistic, multicultural, amorphous past and present. Paris in Turmoil is the perfect aperitif to the city and will enrich any visit. Better still, it can be read in one sitting on the Eurostar on your way there.”
—Edward Chisholm, author of A Waiter in Paris: Adbentures in the Dark Heart of the City

“Hazan, a political activist and insatiable flâneur (‘stroller,’ roughly), has compiled something far greater than musings on the City of Light. Read together, these pieces offer an extended invitation to the reader to take the many layers of Parisian life and history more seriously and give them the attention they merit … [Readers] will find this fiery and charming volume the perfect companion for a thought-provoking walk around the City of Light.”
Library Journal

“Hazan meshes history, architecture, philosophy, and social geography in this concise yet wide-ranging tribute to his native Paris. Throughout, Hazan expertly reflects on the city’s cultural and intellectual transformations, and spotlights writers who “left their mark on the city,” including Victor Hugo and Honoré de Balzac. The result is an astute and opinionated tour of one of the world’s great cities.”
Publishers Weekly

“Fascinating … Hazan’s focus on the detail, colour and texture of Paris has the effect of transporting you there.”
—Rhian E. Jones, New Humanist
